I would but this product again in a heartbeat.

This was the only bottle I could find that my as of now my 3 year old could use with her stomach hurting all the time. It reduced her tummy aches and her fussiness. I would recommend these bottles to anyone that has a fussy, colicky baby. They were my favorite.

Best Bottles!

I have used Playtex VentAire baby bottles with both of my children and I think these are the best bottles! After trying several others, these worked the best. Both of my kids took to these bottles and they are easy for little ones to hold. I love that they come in different sizes, can heat up in the microwave and they are durable. The only cons I can see with these bottles is that there several pieces to wash, but you will have that with most bottles. I've had my few sets for almost two years and they are still going strong, although a bit of a foggy film in the bottles after washing and using daily. I would recommend getting a new set after two years though! I have only had minor leaking due to my own mistakes of the cap not being on right.

They are okay

These worked great for the reflux that our daughter had, but after so long we had issues with the bottom of the bottle leaking. We replaced them and after so long they would leak again. They also got harder to clean as time went on and It scrub them all the time. WE do not have a dishwasher and that could be part of the problem. If she didn't need them I would not buy them anymore

Favorite bottles by far!

I love these bottles! I've used them with both my boys. They are super easy to break down and clean. They aren't complicated like some bottles. You can microwave them. No BPA. They have different nipples you can buy for little ones who are picky. Great bottles!

Our All Time Best!

After a long bout of trying to find a bottle that my daughter would take and not cry with tummy pains afterward, These were the best. We have used them for almost a year and they have held up just like they are still new. Easy to take apart and clean, I do not have to worry about so many pieces or little crooks and crevices that don't get clean. I have handwashed as well as used the dish washer. They are not near as compact as some others, but the quality overpowers that by leaps and bounds. I have purchased these for baby showers since.

perfect fit

Right now these bottles seem to be perfect for my little girl. I was hoping I was making a good choice with the Playtex brand and choice of bottle and it was. So far so good. Child's Comfort My girl does just fine drinking out of these bottles. I try breastfeeding but most times she'd rather just drink from the bottle, especially at night. Leak Prevention These bottles are great with not leaking. I thought that surely the milk would come out from the bottle somewhere, especially the bottom where the vent is. But no. Even when I use my bottle warmer to warm up her milk, no milk leaks. If it gets tipped over no milk will come out from anywhere until my baby is ready to suck the milk out of there. Ease of Cleaning It's not the easiest bottle to clean because there are multiple pieces that come apart but it is not such a big deal when I know my baby likes the bottle. Keeps Air Out It's hard getting my baby to burp. Most of the time she burps on her own. The vent air system is nice because I know not as much air is getting to her when she's drinking from these bottles. She is never uncomfortable if I don't get to burp her or if she hasn't burped on her own. Durability These are good strong bottles. Hard plastic and doesn't seem susceptible to breaking.

Helped with my son's fussy nights.

My son had some reflux problems when he was born. When I switched to these bottles he had considerable less spit up. Child's Comfort As my son got older and would hold the bottle on his own he did so easily with the design of this bottle. He transitioned faster to holding his own bottle, with this narrow and lightweight design, then my other two sons did (their bottles were glass and too heavy). Leak Prevention You have to make sure you assemble the bottle correctly. I also noticed that if you hand wash the bottom suction piece it was more likely to leak. If I washed all parts in the dishwasher with high heat dry it never would leak on me. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean only 5 pieces all can be washed in the dishwasher. Durability Very durable. My son didn't switch to the cup until he was 14 months. From roughly 11 months to 14 months he would throw everything he would pick up, including the bottle. I had several bottles end up out car windows, with the exception of a couple of minor scratches the bottles were intact. I continue to use them and didn't have any problems.

Great for fussy babies

We started using this bottle when my first son was born seven years ago. We purchased pretty much every single type of bottle out there as first time parents we didn't know! When we finally tried the Ventair bottles we saw a difference in the way he ate. He ate so much better and had so much less gas! We stayed with this bottle for the rest of the time he used one and for the other two little boys. This is the only bottle I recommend to my friends and family who are pregnant. I LOVE this bottle. It is such a simple design but it truly makes a huge difference to the baby! Child's Comfort It is so easy on baby's tummys Leak Prevention I have never had a single leak program that was caused by the bottle. The only time I had a leak was because mommy was half asleep and not paying any attention =) Ease of Cleaning Truly the easiest bottle to clean that I have tried. Keeps Air Out WONDERFULLY! Durability I used the same bottle for 7 years and washed who knows how many times. never had a single problem with it.

Nice but Not worth the cost

We purchased the playtex VentAire advanced wide plastic bottles for our daughter who seemed to always get gas while feeding. These bottles did not help prevent her from getting gas as we had hoped. They actually did not appear to be any better than a regular bottle for the most part. The bent neck did make them a little easier to hold upright. On the bright side, they were extremely easy to clean and maintain since they come apart into so many pieces. However the more you take them apart the weaker the rubber seals became. After only a few weeks of cleanings and feedings I noticed the bottles began to leak. And that when I would set them down, there would be a puddle of formula underneath. The playtex ventaire bottles were definately not worth the cost. I was extremely dissatisfied with these bottles and will not be trying to use them with our newest family addition.
